It’s only been three months since the reunion of “Roseanne,” but the show came to a screeching halt after Roseanne Barr went on a supposed “racist” Twitter rant.
The tweets have been deleted, so I’m basing it off of articles that have the actual text in the original Tweets. The tweet was aimed at a former adviser of Barack Obama, saying “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj”
President of ABC Entertainment called the tweet “abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”
Roseanne Barr has since apologized in the tweet below.

I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.— Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 29, 2018
